Welcome to a unique programme – a children and parents yoga summer retreat. Sivananda Yoga Centre, Gurgaon is organizing a residential six days, seven nights yoga camp, a retreat meant for children between age 5 and 12. This wonderful programme, with parents in tow, goes back many decades, with an idea to inculcate yoga to people from an early age.
The kids and parents yoga retreat combines the discipline of yoga and the fun of a camp. The programme allows children to understand the principles of vegetarianism, respect for all religions, develop a love and respect for nature. Children are able to identify with the inner self within a group setting by practicing yoga. Yoga asana, meditation, breathing, relaxation, yoga based activities, games, chanting and lectures are part of the daily routine. There is a day off, where parents and children can also visit nearby places of interest.
The programme is taught by trained staff who are available throughout the retreat to care for the children's needs. Children learn the value of karma yoga (selfless service) as they help to maintain the ashram with their daily task. Yoga asana and meditation help to keep the body healthy, flexible and the mind focused. Your child will have fun with new friends and discover new interests. A unique and exciting way for your child to spend the summer.
In the programme, you will have an opportunity to practice yoga asanas, relaxation, cleansing techniques called kriyas, pranayama, or the science of breath, and breath control, and guided meditation. In addition to this, you will have an opportunity to practice selfless service and be introduced to the yogic theory contained in the ancient scriptures.
In the programme, with a specially controlled diet, fresh air, serene surroundings, a relaxed and peaceful environment, mentally and emotionally aligned gathering of like-minded people, educative lectures on yoga philosophy, highly trained teachers and guides, and the practice of pranayama, asanas and relaxation, you slowly become meditative, your health improves, and you have perception of a better way of life.
The programme gives you the methods, the knowledge and the understanding on how yoga can become a practical way of life.
This retreat, while being a wonderful holiday, offers a profound personal experience, builds a firm foundation of inner discipline.
